Hi Zhao,

When you are doing a new product, the following steps need to be followed

1) Create New Materials ( Finished Product & Rawmaterials & Sub assemblies Etc)

2) Create Bill of Material

3) If you are using the existing work centers(Machines which are being used for manufacturing other products) there is no need of creating new work centers you can use the existing workcenters. If you are using the completely new resources then you need to create new work centers. If you want capture the cost of additional activities at each workcenter you need to create the new activity type and standard value key, define formulas perameters, formulas and assign to activity types.

4) Create routing and mention the workcenters and provide the standard values to estimate the planned cost and also for scheduling purpose.

5) after that you can follow the normal procedure of descrete mftg.

6) Actual cost will be captured during the execution of the production order.

If useful give me points.

In addition, during BOM creation, use BOM usage '6' for a costing BOM.This can only be used for costing purpose.Based on this you can carry out further costing calculation for the costing approval process.

This can be done.

What you mentioned is correct.

You need to create a new work center and routing.

You also maintain Activity costto capture the cost in KP26(for the new cost center and activity type.

Dear Mr.Zhao,

1.Create the material using MM01,

2.Create its own BOM ,new work center assigned with a new cost centre,routing.

3.carryout the rollup & release using CK40N.
